Standalone FPGA Boards

Generate and deploy HDL code on Intel® or Xilinx® boards

To deploy your design on a standalone Intel or Xilinx FPGA board, you must install the HDL Coder™ Support Package for Intel FPGA Boards or the HDL Coder Support Package for Xilinx FPGA Boards respectively. For installation information, see HDL Coder Supported Hardware.
